Vintage bathing suit Mod Abstract pattern
The size tag says that it is a size 34. I assume that it is size 8-10.
The fabric has a white backing. The fabric content tag is faded so that it is not legible. The first word in the list but I cannot make it out. Under that I can make out the word cotton and 10 % nylon. The zipper is metal with a eye & hook closure at the top. The straps have button holes and are adjustable to the button that is on the suit. The suit has stretch in the width but the length has very little give. The bust is faced with the same fabric as the suit. The cups are the inside lining of the that facing. ( meaning the bras cup are part of the suit and not an insert). The armpits have a band of elastic in the finished edge to provide fitting ease. The are two vertical ¾ darts on the back on either side of the zipper. The front has 2 full length darts that curve over the breasts and all the way down. The dart arrangement gives an excellent slimming effect.
The condition is excellent for a previously worn vintage bathing suit. The first button hole on the right strap is a wee bit tattered but not worn out. It is the one that adjust to the shortest size. The the crotch had a separate lining that has a few holes and slightly stained. I could be replaced or removed or ignored.
The suit has been totally clean and it ready to wear.
Here are some measurements:
29” length from the should to the crotch
34” Bust on the dress form.
